UAE Team Emirates' Joe Dombrowski has survived the escape and took the victory of the fourth stage in the Giro d'Italia.

The 29-year-old was part of the escape of the day in the Corsa Rosa -which was formed by 25 riders. Despite being left on the chasers' group after some of the climbs of the day, the American managed to return to the front along Alessandro De Marchi and a last attack allowed him to cross the finish line by himself.

"I was feeling good in the last 50km, just trying not to do too much work and be a bit conservative because I knew the last climb was really tough," said Dombrowski.

"It was a big group and I knew De Marchi was one of the stronger guys so I followed him and on the last climb I was able to get the gap and take the win. I didn't quite get enough time to take the leaders jersey but I am delighted with the stage win."
